Re: Stubborn E

I don’t think it’s stubborn as much as it’s preference. They prefer smaller shells because they can run fast away from predators while PPs prefer big shells to hide in. Honestly if it was me I’d rather a small, light weight shell over lugging around my entire house on my back.

Re: Ants in the tank with 3 underground

Re: Ants in the tank with 3 underground

THhank you! I believe it was wodes post where I first heard of this happening. In your opinion, if the molters have ants on them, should I rinse them off? I haven’t been home to check/dig up yet so I just want to be prepared for whatever I find

Re: possible bacterial bloom

Oh no. :( Are you sure the crab died? Did it smell like dead fish? You could feed it to the other crabs if that isn't too painful for you to do. Usually people who churn the substrate wait until all the crabs are up by chance. Sent from my SM-J327V using Tapatalk yes i'm sure she was dead, she fell...

Re: possible bacterial bloom

Re: 20 gallon long pics please?

i dont have a 20 L but i know what they look like.
a simple solution for now would be to use your 10 gallon as a topper once you get it cleaned out. you can search the forum for topper posts but you basically turn your tank upside down on another one and use it for vines and climbing space. good luck!
